I had the trip of a lifetime booked. To Thailand for my best friends wedding, via Beijing for Christmas and finishing in Burma. The doctors told me to go. To process what they had told me, to relax, sleep lots. I have Thyroid cancer, they explained that I would need to be operated on to remove the thyroid completely and some other lymph nodes that were cancerous. This would be followed by radiation treatment but for now; process.
My Mum and I fell to pieces in a coffee shop outside the Royal Marsden… (boy oh boy they must see some sights! ) My boyfriend came and scooped us up. My Mum left.
We went home and drank champagne.
